Young forever

If you, like us, have had Christmas songs up to here – check out Jay-Z feat. Mr Hudson and the video to their fantastic track “Young Forever”.

Finespun

Last week we stopped by the Finespun exhibition at the Maverick Showroom in Redchurch Street in Shoreditch. Artist Sam Wibberley put on an amazing showcase of his work, and his craftmanship and eye for details is quite impressive. These were some of our favourites pieces:

Put some fizz in your step

Just when you’d told yourself that this was actually 2009, and you hadn’t hit your head and woken up in the 80s, along comes another piece of memorabilia to get you going all retro again.


The classic fizzy drinks maker SodaStream are having a pop up shop event in Camden this weekend. Go along, create your own mocktail, maybe spark some memories if you had SodaStream first time around. Or see what gadgets were like back in the day if you’re too young to remember it. Either way, it’s a nice trip down 80s lane, and they’ve got a bunch of retro games and old school beats on the go to keep you entertained.

What year is it again?

Hadouken rockin B-Side by Wale

Hadouken! are prepping themselves for a big tour to kick off the year.. with another massive tour. Touring seemingly everywhere, everyday. But with that in store, for one last time let us hark back to that November gone. To those happier days. Simpler times. When Hadouken were rocking B-Side by Wale garms for their latest single, Turn the Lights Out

Rock The Lego Digital Camera

Used to build castles and forts with Legos and now you can take pictures with them.  A digital camera built from Legos, it has a 3 Megapixel digital camera, featuring a color 1.5 LCD screen, taking high quality photos with the built-in flash and fixed focus. The camera holds up to 80 photos at a time.  The best part, you can make it bigger by adding more Legos to it.

The Polaroid Factory Jacket

Bringing back the old school.  As we all know, there has been much debate about Polaroid being obsolete, but many fans love the concept of instant film.  It has character, style and there is no replacement using the bulky camera to take those instant photos.  If you made a mistake, all well, those were the best.  None of this Photoshop or editing the pictures.  Since then, Polaroid is back and what was found “deep in the vaults of the former Polaroid factory in Enschede, NL (now the headquarters of development & production for the new Impossible Instant Film)” was these cool jackets.  This is a rare opportunity to show your support and love for Polaroid.  All proceeds from every single sale will go towards running the factory.  A great way to keep Polaroid alive.

Zagreb Pavilion…here we come..

Yes sir.  Another brilliant place to visit.  Next stop, the Zagreb Pavilion.
